Catfarm presents: Elemental
An online four day festival. Kicking off on international earth day, the 22nd of April 2021.
Over the span of the festival we’ll take you with us into our lives, and provide you with poetry, music, meditations, workshops, spoken word, yoga and dance from not only our own community but also international contributions!
The festival will travel along the four elements, starting with earth on Thursday. On this day we will focus on a feeling of strength, having a strong foundation, solid forms. But equally important and connected to this, being able to be vulnerable and allowing suffering as a part of life and growth. We’ll tred in the water on Friday. This day is really about being open to give and receive joy, creating, sensuality – the creation of life. On Saturday we touch fire. We open our minds and hearts, allow transformation and wisdom to come in and realize our power in this world. Sunday we feel the wind – and move with ease. This day is all about acceptance, trust, being able to show love and compassion to ourselves and others.
